1. You must complete and sign the Wyoming notary public application form. The completed and Wyoming notary public application form, along with a check or money order for the fee of $30.00, must be mailed to the Wyoming Secretary of State at the address on the first page of the application. When completing the applicant name portion of the application, you may use initials, or a shortened first name if you wish, but you must use your last name in full.
2. When notified by mail that the Secretary of State has processed your application and provided the expiration date of your commission, you must obtain a Wyoming notary bond covering the same term as your commission.
3. Upon receipt of a notary bond, take the bond to the County Clerk’s office at the county courthouse in the county where you reside. The County Clerk will record the bond and swear/affirm
you as a notary. The County Clerk will then provide your printed notary commission certificate.
